This Magnolia Edith Bogue has done very well since being planted as a small plant five years ago. In front is a Cryptomeria.
A great grouping of broad-leaved evergreens (except the Japanese maple) include Aucuba (left), Ilex (top left)) Mahonia bealei (centre), Viburnum davidii (bottom left), Skimmia (top centre) and Leucothoe scarletta (just visible in the bottom.
I was surprised to hear the Colocasia Pink China survived the winter with no protection. I tried these myself with no luck.
I will have to try and find these this year.
Another plant on my wish list for 2010 is Hosta Empress Wu. (This one is not in the Niagara Falls garden, I found the picture online).
